God’s Glorious Presence at the ASLPN 2018 Prayer Training & Solemn Assembly
Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, and the bride from her dressing room. Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, and do not give Your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples,’Where is their God?’
Once again as has happened since 2010, believers converged from different denominations, ministries, backgrounds, and generations to offer up prayers, praise, and worship to God on behalf of the nation, the church, families, and
many other issues at the ASLPN-organized Solemn Assembly held recently.
The bi-annual event which held at the National Church of God in Fort Washington, MD provided an opportunity for all present to focus on the Lord and cry out for His rule and reign to be enforced, acknowledged, and proclaimed in the nation and in the lives of all participants and their families.The choir, which drew participation from different praise and worship leaders and worshipers, led in worship to the Lord with special renditions and leading by various leaders who all ushered the gathering in songs of adoration and worship to the Lord. The tangible presence of the Lord was very strong and obvious in this year’s Solemn Assembly as people truly rejoiced, prayed and basked in the glory. It was indeed a time for “Open Heavens” Isaiah 64 as was the theme of the gathering. In the Youth Sanctuary of the National Church of God, the youth and young adults had a refreshing and enlightening Youth Solemn Assembly and then joined with the adults in a coming together of the generations in prayer and crying out for the salvation of the generations and for the prodigals to come back home into the Kingdom fold.
